When my soul was embittered, (So often)
when I was pricked in heart,
I was brutish and ignorant; (Yes, Father…)
I was like a beast toward you.
Nevertheless, I am continually with you; (You never leave me.)
You hold my right hand.  (My right hand, oh, thank you, Lord!)
You guide me with your counsel,
and afterward you will receive me to glory. (Praise His Name.)
Whom have I in heaven but you?  (No one.)
And there is nothing on earth that I desire besides you. (You are my life.)
My flesh and my heart may fail, (every day)
but God is the strength of my heart and my portion forever. (and ever. and ever.)
